Austenland

Jane Hayes’s (Keri Russell) adoration of all things Jane Austen is complicating her love life. Determined to be the heroine of her own story, Jane spends her life savings on a trip to Austenland, an eccentric resort where guests experience complete immersion in the Regency era. Armed with her bonnet, corset and needlepoint, Jane strives to avoid spinsterhood … but has a difficult time determining where fantasy ends and real life—and maybe even love—begins. Jennifer Coolidge (Legally Blonde) and Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers) also star in this charming romantic comedy.

I hate February.

I'm just gonna lay it all out there. February's a rough month for me. It's cold outside, I hate Valentine's Day (Let's not even go into my thoughts on that commercial monstrosity), and February is also the anniversary of the death of my puppy.

All I can say is that I'm glad it's short.

So, I've been a little bummed the last few days. And stressed. I was trying hard to get my book done, but it didn't happen by the end of the month. I'm probably beating myself up a bit more than I should over it, but I am upset. Lots of things have been happening the last few weeks, and it makes it hard to get a grasp.

As most people know, my computer died a few weeks ago (Happy 2013!), and now my car is slowly going the way of my computer. I'm angry at an inanimate object. For one thing, the tire light's been on for weeks now, despite my tires being properly inflated, and yesterday, my Check Engine light turned on. Last time that happened, it was because of a faulty sensor that I had to pay $100 to fix. This morning, my heater decided to kick the bucket in 4 degree cold! The day went downhill from there. Though, interestingly enough, it was working again when my dad got into my car when I picked him up after work. Weird.

I went  to a party last to celebrate my good friend, Emily, who turned 25. It was at a dueling piano bar, which was a lot of fun.

Birthday Seranade.
It was a fun night, and it was nice to get out of the house. I don't get out of the house much, but when I do, it's always a lot of fun.

I'm really tired. I'm ready to move on to the next part of my life. I really want this year to be the year I move to Denver to be close to my best friend.


And be on my own again. 27-year-olds shouldn't live with their parents. It's too Charlotte Lucas, and I'm supposed to be Lizzy Bennet. I took the Pride & Prejudice character quiz.

This is a random post, that started off as something whiney, but went back to edit since by the time I had time to finish, I'd already been to the party, was two drinks in, and was feeling a lot better. We all have our Moaning Myrtle moments. Feeling much better today. Plans to go to a housewarming tonight, finish my book (Just because I didn't make my goal doesn't mean I won't finish it this weekend, or even today!), and go to the gym to finish week five of LiveFit today (I'm about three days behind. Eep!). I am concerned about my left knee, though. It's been feeling out of place, but I'll talk to my chiropractor about it on Monday. And someone recommended KT Tape to help it, too, so we'll see.

Have a good Saturday!

  1. I hope I'm Lizzie Bennet too! She's the only one worth emulating, I think :)

    1. Agreed. I actually went to college/lived with a "Lydia." *shudders* Lizzy's the way to go. :-)

    I enjoyed the Moaning Myrtle post. I just had one myself. You should set-up a follow option for your blog. However, I'll slip you into my feed the direct way.

    Nice to meet you and your blog!
